We have all come a long way. We have seen good times and we have seen bad times and we have yet seen horrible times together and yet in all, God have seen us through and brought us to this day.
I see better and brighter days ahead of us. I see a return to Rule of Law and Due Process in the way things are done in the state.
I see a return of the growth and development and value for the well-being of human beings over edifice mentality.
I see quality infrastructure aimed at uplifting the lives of the people. I see real jobs and industries. I see a New Imo.
Today we step into a new chapter which I strongly believe will restore prosperity, peace and unity to our dear State.
The past have taught us a great deal and has ushered us into a new era.
To the brand new Governor of Imo State His Excellency Rt Hon Chukwuemeka Ihedioha and to the Great and Wonderful people of Imo State I wholeheartedly congratulate you for putting Imo State back on the track of real development. May God bless you all.
